I am in the midst of slowly compiling a life changing playlist of songs that go ‘oooh-oooh’ – Rural Alberta Advantage’s Frank, AB, Kings of Leon’s Use Somebody, and just about any song by Arcade Fire. Today’s Untz definitely has made the cut… shoot any more ideas my way.
Today’s Indie: Man on Fire / Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
‘I want the whole damn world to come dance with me’
Wow. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have released the first track off May 29th’s forthcoming album, Here, and it has put me out in the desert watching an epic sunset around an open fire while somehow simultaneously being curled up in the bedroom I grew up in at the same time. With a slow and steady rise, arcing hushed hums, and gentle guitar, Man on Fire has a Sunday kind of sound to it that has happily settled right into and awoken my sleepy Monday morning soul. As a blogger at Folk Hive put it, ‘these goddamn hippies have my heart…’ Happily so.
I want to see our bodies burning like old big suns. #indie
Today’s Untz: Reunion / M83 (Mylo remix)
‘I could build a fort / and play all day / between your lips and mine / let’s stay here forever’
Reunion is one of my favorite tracks off Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, but the beat is so transfixing I never really took the time to figure out the lyrics. The boyfriend sent me this Mylo remix this morning and as I geared up to post it I took a look at a lyrics sites. Floored. The sentiment matches the sound to perfection, and the whole thing is pretty much magical. Ooooh. #untz
